Our Trip to the White House

Every year, the reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion and team are invited to the White House to meet the President and take some really cool tours. Regardless of your political stance, it is a tremendous honor to be recognized by the President of the United States! I, of course, snapped my way throughout the […]

Brexton’s Playroom

We have a room in our house that Brexton basically claimed with all his toys, so shortly after his first birthday I decided I wanted to turn it into an organized playroom for him!

Family Fun at Kalahari Resort Being on the road with a little one means that I’m always looking for fun activities we can do as a family and not be cooped up all weekend – I know my mommies can relate!  And we are lucky to get to travel across the country, so I like […]

Superhero Centerpiece Idea

If you follow me on Snapchat (Samantha.Busch), then you probably saw me documenting my DIY centerpieces for Brexton’s first birthday last month. For those of you that followed along, you saw that they took A LOT of time! I am writing this blog because these centerpieces turned out so adorable, and they aren’t actually that […]

Brexton’s Superhero Bash

Our little superhero turned one on May 18! Mommy had so much fun planning his party that I wanted to share some pictures and party planning details with all of you! I think the hardest part of throwing a party is choosing a theme. We debated between race cars, jungle, primary colors and others, but […]
